A new BYO app? Now that’s the spirit!

Sorry Tinder, we’ve found our true match with this BYO-tiful foodie app!

Who said that (iPhone) X marks the spot when it comes to hunting out nifty BYO restaurants in Brisbane? 

BYO Finder is the brainchild of wine curators Cellarmasters, and it’s sure to be every Aussie foodie’s new best friend, with almost 600 venues already listed in Queensland alone.

User-friendly and free to boot, not only does BYO Finder help wine aficionados find free-flowing spots in their local area, but also recommends wine to go with a restaurant’s cuisine and menu options! Perfect for those who love wine, but usually order the second option on every menu (guilty!), Cellarmasters can help take out the guesswork behind finding the perfect matching wines for your palate. 

Just like you with a bottle opener on a Sunday night, there’s no limit to BYO Finder’s abilities; it also comes with the added functions of letting users recommend new BYO restaurants to other users and book Ubers to listed venues.

Thanks to GPS and search software, this baby is like a Google Maps for goon lovers–and we’re already scrambling to download!

A whole world of BYO wine restaurants at one’s fingertips? We’d tap that. Download for Apple here, and Android here.
